The first 10 pages of Cleopatra’s Daughter by Michelle Moran.

Can you say action packed? The story begins in Alexandria just after Octavian defeats Marc Antony for control of Egypt. If you know anything about history you know what happens to the ruling couple of Egypt. In case you don’t here is a glimpse into the book…

Queen Cleopatra is preparing her children for Octavian’s arrival and the lose of their home and freedom. She orders the guards to tell Marc Antony that she and the children are dead in hope that he will flee and save himself. Heartbroken over the news of his family, Marc Antony kills himself before Octavian arrives at the palace. When Octavian tells Cleopatra that he plans to parade her and her children by Marc Antony through the streets of Rome during his Triumph she takes her own life leaving her children by Marc Antony as orphans.

Initial thoughts…I can’t wait to see where this story will take us. What will happen to the children of Cleopatra and Marc Antony??

Stay tuned for the full review of Cleopatra’s Daughter.
